7:01 am
to protect his young children, when a robber stormed a local bank, all caught on tape. the brave father and his proud kids join us live, this morning. and good morning to all of you. it will be a difficult one for john edwards. former presidential candidate. right now, it's all playing out in his hometown of raleigh, north carolina, where prosecutors are expected to charge him today with a felony. misusing campaign funds to cover up his affair with reyell hunter. and cover up the fact that she fathered his child during the campaign. >> this has to go down as one of the biggest downfalls ever. >> rise and fall. he wasn't elected to the senate until 1998. ran in 2004. and ran again. now, all undone by the fact he fathered this child during the
7:02 am
campaign. tried to get one of his campaign aides to cover it up. and they're going to say he used money from contributors. that's going to be the charge to further this cover-up. so, barring any kind of a last-minute deal or turnaround from edwards, this indictment will come after a very lengthy federal investigation. bob woodruff has been tracking the latest from raleigh. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning, george. we actually did confirm this morning that john edwards will be indicted, unless he pleads guilty. we did see his lawyer come here last night at the airport, gregory craig. he made no comment whatsoever. so, now, it appears to be that it is completely up to him to say yes or no. it is expected that john edwards will be indicted today, after a two-year federal investigation, calling on more than 100 witnesses, seeking to connect the former senator to an allegedly illegal scheme to cover up an affair, while he was running for president. this case boiled down to money. hundreds of thousands of dollars that were allegedly used to
7:03 am
seclude and support hunter, so edwards could continue his campaign. the federal investigation of edwards began a few months after "the national enquirer" had cornered him at a beverly hills hotel. a few weeks later in an exclusive interview with "nightline," edwards finally admitted to the affair. but denied paternity of rielle hunter's child. a report has surfaced that the baby is yours. true? >> not true. not true. >> reporter: and edwards is being investigated to be part of a scheme to keep hunter out of the public eye. >> if something was being paid, it wasn't being paid on my behalf. >> reporter: but the lies began to unravel when andrew young, a one-time close aide to edwards, appeared before a grand jury. young had once falsely claimed to be the father of hunter's child. and along with his wife and three children, went into hiding
7:04 am
with rielle hunter. while edwards continued to pursue his political goals. did john edwards know where you're going? >> yes. >> reporter: does he know why? >> he might not know exactly where we're living. but he knew about the money. he knew about the methodology and he knew about the sources. >> reporter: john edwards' team has been negotiating with the prosecutors here for weeks. he's been pushing to make this a misdemeanor and not a felony. but apparently, that is no longer a possibility. george? >> bob, thank you very much. our legal analyst, dan abrams, joins us now. dan, these are going to turn on the funds that came from two of john's friends. bunny mellon, and fred, his lawyer. were they campaign contributions. >> that's question one. was this a furtherance of his presidential campaign. prosecutors are going to say
7:05 am
this was -- they attentionly avoided that. these funds were diverted for this. edwards will say, no. this was a gift. they're allowed to give a gift. question two will be, did edwards have specific knowledge of it. >> if you get money from a friend, that is allowed. and that's why edwards' lawyers are going to argue, this is something brand-new. no one's ever been prosecuted for something like this before. >> they're right that this has never been used in this way. they're also right that you're allowed to give a gift. you're allowed to give money to friends of yours. there's tax implications. but it's not criminal. the question becomes with the specific purpose of the donations. was the specific purpose of the dollars to further john edwards' presidential ambitions? meaning, if they could keep this affair quiet, that helps his presidential campaign. and that's the reason they were getting the money. >> and that's why the testimony
7:06 am
of his former campaign aide, andrew young, and whether or not he can be believed, is so important. he did work on the campaign. >> and he was the one getting the money. he becomes an absolutely crucial witness. >> dan abrams. thank you very much. now, to the trial of the kidnappers of jaycee dugard, the young woman kidnapped at age 11, held captive for 18 years. we're now hearing her first words to her abductors and her haunting testimony, that reveals how she survived her terrifying ordeal. abbie boudreau has the latest from los angeles. >> reporter: phillip garrido was sentenced to 413 years in prison on wednesday. jaycee dugard's words haunted the courtroom. she reveals for the first time, in a statement read by her mother, what her ordeal was really like. i chose not to be here today because i refuse to waste another second of my life in your presence. i hated every second of every
7:07 am
day of 18 years, because of you and the sexual perversion you forced on me. for all the crimes you have both committed, i hope you have as many sleepless nights as i did. in newly-released grand jury transcripts, jaycee describes in vivid detail, the moments that led up to her abduction on june 10th, 1991, when she was just 11 years old. jaycee remembers the garridos' car pulling up next to her that morning. i didn't think it was weird at the time. but it pulled up close next to me. suddenly, jaycee recalls she felt a shock and fell to the ground, as the garridos allegedly used a taser to get her inside the car. once inside, dugard said, i heard voices in the front. and the man said, i can't believe we got away with it. and he started laughing. garrido had been out on parole for a 1976 rape when dugard was
7:08 am
kidnapped. that victim was in court on thursday, to lash her attacker's sentencing. >> i know this part of phillip garrido's life is over. and his ordeal with me. but i would hope that no one's going to forget the horrible mistakes that the parole system's made in this entire situation. >> the authorities were coming to his house. even having surprise visits. and didn't figure it out? this is one of those cases that changes the system because everyone's going to want to make sure that nothing like this ever happens again. >> reporter: and we're learning more details from jaycee's grand jury testimony, where she says she told her captors, if they were holding her for ransom, that her family did not have a lot of money. she said she pleaded with them from the very beginning to let her go. robin? >> chilling to hear her testimony. all right, abbie. thank you very much. now, for what's turned out to be a costly decision by
7:09 am
new jersey governor, chris christie. the chopper and his son's baseball this week on a state police helicopter. he said he was trying to be a good dad. but he is paying for it now. dan harris is here. he's been looking into this. >> george, good morning. this is not only a story about a rising republican star, dealing with a serious controversy. but it's about also a parent dealing with a very common and very difficult balancing act. facing cries of hypocrisy, the hard-charging, budget-cutting chief executive of new jersey had to cut a check of his own. reimbursing the state 2,100 bucks for using a government helicopter for private purposes, including flying from his son's baseball game to a meeting with republican party big wigs from iowa, who were trying to convince him to run for president. >> the fact of the matter is that sometimes when you're governor, you do not control your schedule. >> reporter: christie says he puts his responsibilities as a father over his responsibilities as a governor. >> he's going to leave for
7:10 am
college in a little over a year. and those things are going to be gone. >> reporter: but this story has put the governor in a tough spot. he has aggressively argued for cutbacks and for shared sacrifice. it has earned him a national profile with many republicans begging him to run for president. he has consistently told everybody, including diane sawyer, he's not going to do it. >> i'm not running. >> categorically not running? >> i don't know how else to put it, diane. >> reporter: his reaction to the controversy over the helicopter, was much milder than the way he handled the dustup for his refusal to return from a family vacation at disney world over the winter. >> this is partisanship. >> reporter: christie was insisting that he was only writing a check to get the media to stop chattering so he could focus on fixing the state budget. >> i also understand that this is a really fun media story for all of you. >> christie was also asked what his son had to say about all this.
7:11 am
according to the governor, his son came to him after the game and said, dad, thanks for coming. george, this is a mixture of personal and political. >> right. and as you pointed out in the piece and he has said many times, he used the helicopter a lot less than his predecessors. this time, you can't get away with it. >> especially given his message of cost-cutting. >> thanks, dan. you can weigh in on this. vote now using the "gma" app on your android phones or iphone. or go to our website. we'll have the answers later online. >> it will be interesting to see what people weigh in. now, to the new challenger for the race of the republican nomination. mitt romney has officially jumped into the race now. he made the announcement in new hampshire on thursday, just hours before sarah palin passed through that state. john berman has more and joins us from portsmouth, new jersey -- new hampshire. john? >> reporter: good morning. i'm standing right in front of sarah palin's bus. but she's not in it.
7:12 am
just a few minutes ago, we saw her drive off in her suv. right now, she's having breakfast with new hampshire's newly-elected senator, kelly ion. palin heads back to alaska today, we think, leaving a trail of candidates and reporters in her wake. sarah's clam bake, versus mitt's chili. >> here comes the chili. >> reporter: the culinary campaign that got a tad costic. because the day that romney announced his campaign in new hampshire, sarah palin came to new hampshire to talk about the health care plan. >> even on a state level and a local level, a man coming from a governing body, it's tough for a lot of us independent americans to accept. >> reporter: romney refused to engage with sapalin. but in an interview with abc news, he did talk about barbs within his own party. >> if you worry about criticism,
7:13 am
you shouldn't get into politics. if people don't like what you represent, they can choose someone else. >> reporter: what romney wants to talk about is jobs and the economy, and what he sees wrong with this white house. >> unemployment. foreclosures. our national debt. higher prices for gasoline. >> reporter: meanwhile, rudy giuliani was in new hampshire, too, at a party fund-raiser. not ruling out a possible candidacy. he told cnn -- >> if i think i'm the one with the best chance of winning, then i would make the decision to do it. >> reporter: in this cell phone video, you can see piper blocking out a reporter to protect her mother. there was an apology. >> piper apologizes for pushing. >> reporter: oh. so, sarah palin, of course, will not be back in new hampshire in a couple weeks. but a lot of the other candidates will be. there's a big, big debate here. mitt romney, tim pawlenty and others showing up here. palin will not be part of the
7:14 am
debate because she, of course, is not an official candidate yet, as far as we know. robin? >> oh. we didn't say you were back on camera. okay, john. have a great weekend. and you have an exclusive today. >> that's right. rick santorum is going to make an announcement about his plans for 2012. seems like memorial was the starting gun for this presidential campaign. we're going to turn to the economy on-edge. with the jobs report coming out, there's worries about the strength of the economy and washington's ability to do with the debt. bianna, we have a big jobs report. >> reporter: that's right, george. we're expecting 190,000 jobs to have been added last month. yet, the unemployment rate is expected to go to 8.9%. if we see 190,000 jobs, that would be 4 of the best months in job creation in 5 years. big if. we told you yesterday, adp, a private payroll provider,
7:15 am
estimates only 38,000 jobs added. we've seen economists lower their expectations for this report. >> this is going to be tough news for the white house. and it comes as moody's, this investor service, yesterday warned that failure to reach a deal on the debt negotiations or make progress in the next few weeks could lead to a downgrading of america's credit rating. >> reporter: that's right. this would be a big kahuna. talking about the debt ceiling. seeing if we can have that raised from $14.4 trillion. to $16.7 trillion. moody's said, we could see the sterling u.s. credit rating downgraded from aaa to aa. >> that would create turmoil in the markets. let's bring in jake tapper right now. yesterday, the treasury secretary, tim geithner, said he's confident there's going to be a deal. on the other hand, you hear the public statements on both sides. democrats say there's going to
7:16 am
have to be new taxes as part of this deal. republicans say no way. republicans say there's going to be medicare cuts as part of this deal. democrats say no way. are they really making progress? >> sources close to the negotiations tell me they are making progress. it isn't an agreement of 10 trillion in spending cuts and revenue. it's more modest than that. they've agreed on about $1 trillion in deficit reduction. first, there's the low-hanging fruit, the things that everybody can agree on that are less partisan and more regional. like eliminating or reducing farm subsidies. while democrats don't want medicare cuts, they are willing to have some sort of spending reductions in medicare. while republicans don't want new taxes, they are willing to close some tax loopholes. there's some common ground as of right now. but it is a very political environment. >> and any weak jobs for this month is an aberration.
7:17 am
but they are nervous about this. >> it could be a bad jobs report. they are talking about how this is the first month we'll see of the effect of that devastation in japan and high energy prices. but they say it will be positive. how positive is the question. >> jake, thanks very much. now, we go to the news. josh elliott is back. >> hey, george. good morning, to all of you. we begin with worldwide worry, as three americans are now believed to be stricken with the same strain of e. coli, blamed for 18 deaths in europe and sickening hundreds worldwide. the americans had recently traveled to germany. this bacteria has never been seen before. experts can't explain why it is particularly hitting young adults, especially women, so very hard. the outbreak is blamed on contaminated vegetables. but the source remains a mystery. and the man accused of overseeing the worst massacre in europe of world war ii, called
7:18 am
him obnoxious at the hague today. he refused to enter a plea and said he was defending his country when thousands of muslims were slaughtered under his watch. a stunning comeback in the nba finals. >> what did you say? >> a stunning comeback in the nba finals. leaving me in perfect position. the mavericks trailed by 15. against miami last night, this happened. a 17-2 run to tie it. dirk nowitzki continues a remarkable run through the postseason. a look at the unofficial standings here at the newsdesk. george's visions -- >> oh. >> so, robin, it's you and me. i have to tell you, i'm looking real good. i got the win i needed out of the mavericks. >> game on, baby. let's go. >> i like it. you know who else is happy? colleen coyle from our dallas

7:32 am
>> i don't know. >> she's out there somewhere and her rotten body is starting to decompose because everything you told us we have caught you in a lie. >> reporter: we now know these are lies. casey admitted it. we know there's no nanny. casey stunned the court by saying caylee accidentally drowned. but her lies were exceptional. here she is leading her brother on a wild goose chase to find caylee. >> where should i search? >> check things locally, lee. in all honesty. places that are familiar to us. >> reporter: here she is insisting to her parents that caylee is still alive. >> she's okay. i know in my heart she's not far. >> reporter: fast-forward three years, and casey is accusing her father of covering up the drowning. she blames him for years of sexual abuse at the hands of her father and brother. george anthony denies it all.
7:33 am
and the jury got this glimpse into their relationship. >> you've been a great dad and you've been the best grandfather. don't for a second think otherwise. i can't even put into words how glad i am she had both of you. >> reporter: and to her brother, lee. >> you know how much i love you. and how much i appreciate this more and more every day. >> i love you, too. and we're going to -- we're going to find caylee. >> reporter: but all they found were caylee's bones, bound in duct tape, scattered in the woods. for "good morning america," ashleigh banfield, abc news, orlando. and joining us again are now, the host of "nancy grace," nancy grace. she's there in atlanta. and our legal analyst. dan abrams back in the studio with us right now. the jury, nancy, heard a lot from casey yesterday, in those tapes. the defense already said she lied. what is the perception, now that
7:34 am
they have actually heard her? what is the perception of her in that courtroom? >> you know, robin, you just hit the nail on the head. it's one thing to hear a reporter or a news anchor or somebody camped outside the courthouse, like i am right now. talk about casey lying. it's another thing altogether for the jury to sit there and hear hour after hour, of tot mom lying, indicating nothing to suggest that there was an accidental death. that caylee's actually dead. any fear for her father. or that she was ever the victim of sexual abuse. hour after hour, we heard that. and to hear her lead the police detectives on a wild goose chase, all the way knowing caylee was literally rotting in a makeshift cemetery, is creepy. that's the best way to put it. and you know what else, robin? when the judge asked them, it's
7:35 am
5:00. do you want to go home? they said no. we'll keep watching. and they did. >> and the great detail of the lies. how does the defense combat this? >> this fits in with an upside down way with what the defense is. the defense is saying, she is a great liar. she's learned to be a great liar because of the abuse that she endured as a child. it's a tough defense. it's a long shot defense. but when you watch her lying, so effectively, the defense would say, it kind of fits in with their theory. the other thing that's interesting. you watch the interaction with her parents and her brother on that videotape. and it's clear that they had, past tense, a really close relationship. she was really close with her mother and father and her brother. now, it's not just the state versus casey anthony. it's the state and her mother and her father and her brother, to some degree, against casey anthony. i think that's making it more
7:36 am
difficult. >> i know we asked you this before. is there anything that happened recently, anything that happened yesterday, that makes you think she will take the stand? >> no. there's nothing additional. to prove their defense, she's going to have to take the stand. that doesn't mean she will. i think it will be very difficult for her to take the stand. but to demonstrate that dad abused her, that's why she's such an effective liar, she has to take the stand. the problem is, when you have someone who is an admitted liar, and someone who is clearly a really good liar, she gets up on the witness stand and you can count on the fact that the jurors will say, i don't know if i can believe anything she says. >> nancy, dan again brings up an excellent point. if she does take the stand, how can anybody believe her? >> i don't believe that they will. i don't believe they will believe her for a minute. long story short, when you're listening to the tapes, so much comes out. for instance, at one point,
7:37 am
cindy anthony is so weak at this point in their search for caylee, she's almost laying on george, her husband. she said, hey. did you hear? the reward has gotten up to 2 225$,000 to find caylee? and tot mom goes, hey. that's my bail. she wants to spend the money on her bail. that's what comes out. >> but when the jury was out of the courtroom, the defense made a couple of motions. and one was they want her father's medical records to be brought into evidence. why do they want that? >> well, i'm sure that somehow they're going to use it to suggest that he was on, maybe, antidepressants. and that he has a mental, or physical, or emotional problem, that would have led him to take part in this. i hate to speculate what it could be. his medical condition has nothing to do with this. but i think it's going to be embroidered more into tot mom's
7:38 am
web of lies. and the reality here is, i put a lot of liars on the stand. i cross-examined a lot of liars. i've never seen anyone lie like this, with such rich detail. normally, a lawyer looks at detail to suggest a statement is true. not in this case. i've never seen a liar like this. >> whatever it, is they're trying to undermind george anthony's credibility. they're trying to attack him with the medical records. >> and the grief specialist. they want to be able to have testimony to explain casey anthony's emotions or lack thereof. >> right. there is no one way everyone endures grief. again. don't know how much that is going to help her because you're talking about so many different lies here. >> all right. dan, nancy, as always, thank you very much. have a great weekend, you two. >> thank you, robin. let's get another check of the weather right now. and in for sam, is colleen coyle from our dallas station, wfaa. she's there at the park.

intentionally. he was in an altered state. he would never do this to hurt us or hurt anyone else. >> reporter: david rozga's death has led to proposed legislation, that would ban all of the chemicals used in the k2 and spice products, now so widely available, even in a small town in iowa. >> the boys went to the shopping mall and purchased it. >> reporter: the shopping mall? >> the shopping mall. they don't care who they hurt or what they do. >> reporter: retail store trade groups oppose the proposed ban. and says as long as the products are legal, there's no reason not to sell them. >> a ban is dangerous. >> reporter: why is a ban dangerous? >> it sends it underground. i would like to ask the government, what is wrong with euphor euphoria? and who gave them the right to regulate it? >> reporter: the 14-year-old daughter of an abc news employee, wearing a hidden camera, easily bought some spice. >> how much is the spice?

8:14 am
this bank robber, casually dressed in green t-shirt and baseball hat, strolls into the bank of america branch, watch as he throws an empty sack to a teller and turns the weapon on two, terrified children, sitting quietly in these chairs. in a flash, their father, eddie peoples, runs over to them, putting himself directly in the line of fire. as the children clamor for safety under their chairs, eddie works quickly to create a safety enclave around them, with whatever furniture he can find. the standoff ends only when the thief receives his bundle of money, and flees out the back door to this car. but little does he know, eddie is just seconds behind him, heading to his own white van. what 2 robber, who police now know is 34-year-old matthew rogers, wasn't betting on, is that eddie is a staff sergeant. he knows a thing or two about
8:15 am
how to diffuse potentially deadly situations. and it shows. eddie leaps into his van, speeding halfway around the parking lot and cuts matthew off in his getaway car, subduing him until the sarasota county sheriff's office arrives. >> this is something that we encourage every citizen to do. this gentleman knew what he was doing. and he was in control. >> reporter: they say once eddie finishes his career in the army, he has a job with them anytime he wants it. and eddie peoples joins us now, along with his sons. >> thank you, george. >> what an incredible story. take us back to that moment. it seems like the instincts took over the moment you saw that gun. >> george, it was a real moment. i saw the gun. and i actually thought it was a joke at first. my children also thought it was a joke. they started laughing. so, the bank was dead-quiet. and the gunner saw my children laughing. so, it drew a lot of attention
8:16 am
to him. my instincts took over. >> you got them protected. we saw you create that barricade. >> i would rather take a bullet than letting one of these beautiful boys get hurt. >> what were you thinking? >> he was thinking it was a joke. >> a joke at first. >> you know, you didn't stop once your kids appeared to be out of danger. you actually went and caught him. >> this guy was a potentially dangerous guy. he was cold. he was calculating. the way he said was the way we would order lunch. i will shoot you guys. >> just calmly? >> yes. my whole mission at that point was to get this guy before he got on the road, before he could potentially hurt anyone else. if i could buy the police a little bit of time, that's what i was going to do. >> we showed it. you were able to, after you got outside of the bank, you were able to take your car and block
8:17 am
him. and he came out and pointed the gun right at you. >> he came out. i fully expected to take two shots to the windshield. when he didn't do that, he came to the back door and tried to hijack the van. >> your van? >> yes. my van, with me in it. when the door didn't open for him the way he wanted, i knew right there, i had to do something else. i got out of the van. i was immediately greeted with a handgun to the forehead. i took that away from him and put him down on the ground. >> show me how you did it. this is all of your army training. >> you want me to show you? >> yeah. go ahead, show me. i don't want you to hurt me. he put the gun right there. >> he put the gun almost directly to my forehead. i grab him. >> gentle, please. i can't move my wrist anymore. >> you can strip the weapon a y away. you can take the weapon away and
8:18 am
you can hit them with it. i reached around, grabbed him like this and slammed him down, using all of my body weight. >> and that was it? >> he didn't want anymore after that. >> i don't blame him for that. you can do a lot of damage with those arms. your boys are loving being on tv. >> they were really brave. >> you guys were brave. and when your dad came back, you asked him what? >> when i came back in the bank, what did you ask me? >> did you get the bad guy? yes, i did. >> and they know. they know you serve in dangerous places. >> i put it in perfective for my boys, especially my 6-year-old. he takes it hard when i get deployed. every time i go, i say daddy's going to fight the bad guys. when i left that bank and walked back in, he said, daddy, did you get the bad guy? i said, yeah. daddy got him. applause everywhere. they think i'm superman. this doesn't make it better.
